Sensors and Signal Processing

The Sensors and Signal Processing research group consists of electronics and physics staff whose research interests encompass the sensing of the environment and the processing of signals to gain useful information and to control systems.  Sensor technologies of interest include optical sensing (for industrial inspection applications), visual sensors (for 3D time-of-flight range imaging and robotic navigation) and electromagnetic sensing (at low, radio and microwave frequencies for biomedical applications).  The information gained from these sensors is processed using sophisticated techniques to reconstruct underlying processes (such as the behaviour of neurones and brain matter or the reconstruction of surface profiles of viewed objects), for industrial and robotic control (for produce inspection, for navigation) and for better and safer diagnosis and treatment in biomedical applications.
